Canada's Gun Registry - Alive Still

By a vote of 153 to 151, the Canadian Gun registry stays alive. Phew, that's even closer than the Heller and McDonald decisions, of course this Canadian one went in the right direction.

Now, I guess they have to work on its efficiency and cost-effectiveness. What do you think?

  1. Phew, that's even closer than the Heller and McDonald decisions . . .

    Yeah--I guess 50.3289474% to 49.6710526% is a little closer than 55.5555555% to 44.4444444%.

    Did I embarrass you by pointing out your tendency to exaggerate, and now you're compensating by going to extreme understatements, Jadefool's Biggest (Only?) Cheerleader?

  3. "of course Heller and McDonald went in the right direction."

    Fixed that for you, unless you really *do* support irresponsible restrictions.

  4. Wow, that is closer than I would have thought. Maybe Canadians are starting to come around. I bet the next pro-gun measure passes.

  5. Get out of here, FWM. You thought it would pass this time.

    Zorro, another way to look at it is in the Supreme's vote, it was determined by 1 (one) vote. That's close.

  6. So for the over $2 billion cost to the Canadian since 1997 (they claimed only what $20 million, ROTFLMFAO), how many cases have been solved and how many lives have been saved?

    Oh darn, there we go demanding real facts again. Heck, even that anti gun fanatic police chief in Toronto can not point to any single incident and show how the registration led to the solving of a crime, and in no fashion can he point to prevention.

    Well that data actually exists as you can go to Statcan, the Canadian government database and look up crime data and show everyone.

    Show everyone how, the violent crime rate didn't reduce, violent crime with a firearm didn't reduce, all that violence that didn't reduce as a result of a registration program that only infringes on the law abiding and affects the criminals in no fashion.

    By the way, have you ever looked at the NON-Compliance rate to registration in Canada, ROTFLMFAO, why I believe it is over 50% on average.

    Funny how any country with a registration scheme has the same problem, and similar results.

    Yeah the US has an estimated 300 million firearms, not including those on the criminal or black market and you believe the US citizens would register them all, ROTFLMFAO, Sieg Hiel, Sieg Hiel, Dasvadanya Conrade, uh how do you say that in Kenyan eh?

  7. Now, I guess they have to work on its efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

    The good news (I guess) is it really can't get any less efficient. Billions spent and little to no results.

  8. "Get out of here, FWM. You thought it would pass this time."

    No I didn't. In fact I expected it to fail by a wider margin. I am now encouraged that Canada will move closer to common sense gun ownership next vote.

  9. Who has been footing the $2 billion bill? Has it been all Canadian taxpayer, or just their gun owners through taxes and fees?

  10. Jadefool's Biggest (Only?) Cheerleader:

    Zorro, another way to look at it is in the Supreme's vote, it was determined by 1 (one) vote.

    And still another way to look at it is that the 11.1111111% margin in the Heller and McDonald decisions is more than half again greater than Obama's 7.2% margin of victory in the popular vote, over that other asshole. That margin, I seem to remember, was hailed as a "mandate for change."

  11. That's one way to say it. Another way is, he was thrown out. Another was is, he was thrown out by Marsellus. And even another way is, he was thrown out of a window by Marsellus because of you.

  12. Alright, alright--I can't help but give points for skillful use of a Pulp Fiction reference.

    Still one of my favorite movies ever.
